Hi :) I installed Sierra on my Inspiron and Im unable to get the integrated (and only) graphics card to work accelerated.

I tried booting with Intel set to true, ig-platform set to 0x12345678, Fake ID set to 0x00000000. My system is loading Lilu, IntelGraphicsFixup. Mac OS detects the graphics card as it should - Intel 520 with around 1500 MB of memory, but I get no transparency. What could be the cause of this?

no chance of working graphics while using: ig-platform set to 0x12345678 as that is invalid
